HAI Expands International Distribution
HAI, North America’s leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, has announced the addition of 24 new International Distribution Partners.

Jeram Correa, HAI’s International Sales Manager credits HAI’s expansion to increased consumer demand and competition among security companies. “While traditional security systems are still in use, more and more companies are attempting to stand out from their competitors by expanding their product range with home automation systems.”
